How to personalize nearly any wooden object so long as it has a flat surface for you to paint.
You can see I’m simply painting inside the lines to make the letters above. I work from right to left because I am left-handed and don’t want to smudge the fresh paint.
I originally shared how to handpaint letters onto wood in an older tutorial post here. This process below is a updated version with much better pictures and fun fresh paint colors too!
- wooden trug or other flat wood surface
- painters tape
- paint brushes
- computer print out
- ballpoint pen
- acrylic craft paint
- clear gloss poly spray
Below you can see the indent left behind, you have successfully transferred the lettering onto the wood.
Either way it’s still pretty darn cute. This is a very simple project that can turn a blank, empty wooden object into a great gift.
